Food for thought.

    • You said it perfectly. +1.
      Another thing I hear which is total nonsense, is, “my wife is my best friend”. Just another misleading myth that confuses our young couples. They don’t have to be best friends or bff. Marriage is not about being “best friends”. It’s about respect, derech eretz, and going out of your comfort zone to help your spouse.

  2. According to this article, she was 15 and he was 20 when married the first time. Are all the anti Moore hypocrites going to crawl out and label the husband a pervert?!

  3. “They were married on December 24, 1955. Harold and Lillian had 5 children — Miriam, Timothy, Larry, Laura and Mark — in their 8 1/2 years together. They split up in 1967”. 1955-1967 makes 12 years of marriage!!!
